I am ramping up to participate more in the FreeBSD project, and I

First, I could use some general ramp-up advice.  About me: I'm not new
to FreeBSD as an admin.  I have contributed a few shell patches in the
past, and I am somewhat familiar with the PR process.  I am dusting
off my C from college, and I've otherwise started to fish for myself
as much as possible as outlined here:

Any other suggestions will be gratefully accepted.

Second, I will be at BSDCan this year - my first BSD conference.  I
have already asked some of you for first-timer advice, but I could
always use more perspectives.  Also, since I won't recognize most of
you by sight, please take a quick look at the photo on my blog. If you
see me, some ice-breaking help would be appreciated. :-)

If you are in the same boat -- either looking to ramp up, or new to
BSDCan, or both -- I'm looking for buddies. I'll also be looking for
like-minded folks at the "Getting Started in FOSS" session.  Contact
me off-list.

I look forward to meeting you!

apartment-style room to combine with someone.  Contact me if you're
